I understand your example and completely understand that there are infinity-1 patents out there and nobody is going to review them all. I also am getting the understanding that the patent office doesn't actually explicitly protect you from anything, but really just helps you put a stake in the ground saying I thought of this on this date - maybe somebody else already thought of it, maybe not.

But, to be clear, let's say in your example that your patent referenced a known patent 123. Is there any precedence that might imply that you are protected from being accused of copying/infringing that specific patent 123? Again, I understand that there might be other patents out there that are possibly an issue, but I'm talking about a specific patent that you referenced. Thanks!

Hypothetically, say patent A references existing patent B, and patent A gets approved. Is patent A then protected from being accused for infringement by patent B owners?

From what I have gathered, the answer seems to be not necessarily, but I'm very new to all this. Thanks in advance!
